1/31 Site Modifications and Rule Changes (PLEASE READ)

1 post in this topic

Effective immediately, some changes have been made to the site rules and forum structure following user feedback.

These changes are intended to make Xbox Chaos easier for everyone to use and to promote more discussion. You will not be punished ex post facto for posts made before these changes.

Please read this carefully.

Site changes:

  • Posting in Free Discussion will now count toward your post count.
  • The Media forum has been merged into Free Discussion. Please remember to prefix your topics appropriately.
The following rule has been ADDED:

You may NOT link to a program without providing a verifiable virus scan, unless the link is to a reputable source or a virus scan can be found by following the download link. We recommend using VirusTotal.

Explanation:

  • While uploading a program to the download manager requires you to submit a virus scan link, there was previously no rule regarding linking to a program in the forums.
  • Note that you do not need to include a virus scan for links to a reputable source - e.g. Microsoft.com or the Xbox Chaos GitHub.
  • Sites such as Mediafire or Mega are NOT considered reputable sources, and neither is attaching a program to your post.
The following rule has been CHANGED:

You may NOT discuss or show screenshots/videos of anything related to leaked game content. This includes pre-release content.

has been changed to

 

You may NOT discuss or show screenshots/videos of games which have not been made available to the public yet, unless the content has been showcased or released by official sources.

Explanation:

  • This rule change will now allow you to discuss pre-release content (e.g. Halo 4 Beta) as long as the content in question has already been released to the public, officially or unoficially.
  • "Available to the public" includes limited-access betas, such as betas which are only available if you preorder a game.
  • Discussing content which is not reasonable for most people to gain access to (for example, a leaked beta which is only passed between people in certain circles) is still not allowed.
  • Remember that linking directly to illegally-leaked content (e.g. a download for the Halo 4 Beta) is also still prohibited.
The following rule has been CHANGED:

You may NOT discuss bypassing Xbox Live's console authentication system.

has been changed to

 

You may NOT discuss bypassing Xbox Live's console authentication system, including discussing services designed for such a task.

Explanation:

  • This rule change makes it clearer that discussing services for bypassing XBL authentication is also prohibited.
TL;DR:
  • Posting in Free Discussion now counts toward your post count.
  • The Media forum has been combined with Free Discussion.
  • You need to provide a virus scan whenever you link to a program unless the link is reputable.
  • You can now talk about betas which have been made available to the public.
  • You can't talk about services for bypassing XBL authentication. This was already a rule, but it was made clearer.
